I'm cool with my vote on imgay. Not liking the way he's tunnelling Kash and being an arse about it.

Ugh this post is awful. Look at it. Self-pitying, self-conscious, and self-satisfied all at the same time. How that's even possible I'm not sure.

imgay is still my policy vote but this is a Bad Post and I Don't Like It.

Also he referenced how there was no Day 1 jokephase, but it feels like this entire day has been a joke, both during my initial read and my reread this morning. Kash, imgay, Venom Soag, and mags shitposting relentlessly, people seriously voting for a D1 miller claim, the mod joining in on the shitposting, it's just...ugh. I mean when the most reasonable person in the game is posting in-character for the early 1800s all you can do is just wait for them to die or get sick of it.

iajanus is my Dark Horse pick for scum, his posts have been mostly metagame conversation (e.g. "oh wow look at the time! i'm just posting!" "great flavor" and "yes that is how this game mechanic works") and one question that it doesn't seem like he cares about the answer to.

Infinitum isn't that new to mafia, and has played pretty well in previous games as both scum and town. From D1 posting I'm not sure if his posting means anything yet but I'm worried he's trying to push towards imgay or Kash under the guise of jokephase. Hard to tell at this point. I'll vote him to avoid no-lynch which at this stage just helps scum, and then at least we get some information for tomorrow.

I mean it's just so vague, and doesn't scream "jailer" to me. Mags is right as well, jailer is useful for both alignments. I've been a town jailer before and been on a scum team with a jailer before.

Also no way is town going to investigate and clear you on N1, are you serious? Waste an investigation on someone who, if cleared, would just get NK'd.

Hypothetically, if I were scum and you were town, I wouldn't NK you just so town would waste more time trying to lynch you tomorrow when you didn't die. Only thing I can say is try not to post so badly when you have a town power role, viz. never post like this:

I did, it was on iajanus, and you ignored it. It was even getting traction until we decided on Infinitum, who then claimed and then everyone forgot about him because apparently he posts like Scumposting 101 in every game regardless of alignment.

How will he learn unless he gets lynched for posting nothing but:

iajanus posted:

From reading the wiki I have no idea. I understand what the role does, but not why you'd want to claim it now. I don't see how we get any help from it.

I haven't played with a miller before - can we assume that if a miller is in the game a) there's a cop,and b) the miller is town (since it makes no sense to have a scum one) ? Or am I misunderstanding how it theoretically works?

I do think Infinitum's claim is more and more bullshit the more he posts though. He should have been the lynch yesterday until BK went all bleeding heart over the claim and then MT cottoned on and picked Lurker Jedit out of a hat to be the easy sacrifice, ignoring my case and the healthy suspicion on iajanus.

In order, I'd vote iajanus->Infititum->MT.

The Ninth Layer posted:

Had a very busy work week, just going to drop the PR so I can get straight into posting in the game. I'm having real difficulty getting into this one possibly because of my unfamiliarity with the majority of posters here.

I really don't know what to make of Infiinitum getting a million votes yet not getting voted out yesterday. I probably wouldn't have voted for him if I had been around, but I'm surprised that a player who so many people wanted voted out still escaped the lynch pretty easily. Jailer is a very common scum role and I think jailing a claimed vigilante is a scummy use of it. Consider me on board with this lynch today, I just don't want to vote without knowing the exact vote count.

I wish votefinder had been working for that day yesterday. I'm unclear about the hammer rules too, it seemed like 14 out of 15 people were needed to preemptively end the day which is something I haven't seen from other games before.

This post pings me as well. It seems a little too self-conscious and apologizey for TNL.

"I keep traveling for work" is my excuse for lurking this game, with a side of "votefinder being down and not providing updates on deadlines and such", and a soupçon of "reading this thread keeps sounding like white noise in my head no matter who's posting". I go through individual post histories and all of it looks like content that has to do with the game but then in context it just seems like so much nothing is being said, really by anyone. Sure the kash/imgay slapfight is annoying and takes up way too much time because a) Kash would have to have hard-committed to a total bus of a scumbuddy super loving early in the game to be scum and b) imgay is at least playing the game differently from the other game I was in with him when he was so blindingly scum it hurt; and Venom Soag posts like my drunk ex-girlfriend when she thinks loving me is a good idea again (nb: it is, ladies :wink:); Magnus is a stream of mafia consciousness; there are so many anime avatars that I can't tell when birdstrike is posting; iajanus is a string of How To Successfully Get Coached By Your Scumbuddies posts since about midday yesterday; BK starts playing like a beep boop scum robot who hits the high notes of "unvoting on a lovely claim" and "OMGUS"; MT and TNL are people I remember from bygone times that I want to keep around because at least I know they'll play the game; and...I think that's it? That's all the players I can remember. Oh wait Revolver Anidav. He seems alright. This game does not capture my interest even when I have time to post because I don't know what I would post, it seems like people are playing a different game than I am, with the exception of Flying Leatherman, who actually seems like he's looking at the same things I'm looking at and reading them similarly, even if we don't completely agree on everything.

Anyways, rant over, so far iajanus has mollified me with no longer posting like Scumposts 101 and has moved on to Scumposts 201, but from my understanding of the Current Mafia Situation BK should know better than to post the way he has since OT of D1. The unvote was super scummy, he's too quick to believe claims, his D1 posts were hedge as gently caress until he went hard on imgay (which I believed in because of the previous game I played with him), and this post:

BottleKnight posted:

iajanus's posting is so vanilla I barely even register it. People say he's like that in every game so I've almost entirely disregarded him for the moment.

the day after he said "I buy it" to Infinitum's claim and switch his vote to iajanus in OT is super loving sketchy. I urge people to look at BK's D1 OT play and try to find a way it comes from a town perspective.

I've been suspicious of Kash for awhile now (yes, I think he was bussing Infinitum; no, I don't believe his suspicions on me or imgay) and since no one is dying on either end I haven't had any strong reason to change my mind yet. #vote Kash

Questions for you:

Not even a little bit suspicious on BK? If not, why not?

Why do you think Kash would hard-bus Infinitum the way he did? I mean, I know generally why scum bus, but that was an Extreme Unnecessary Bus

What is your theory on why no one has died at night?

Unlike other posters, I am genuinely interested in your answers to these questions and will hound you until I get them or die.
